Madras HC to take up case of disqualific...

The future of the AIADMK government in Tamil Nadu will be at stake when the Madras High Court takes up the petition of AIADMK's 18 rebel MLAs against their disqualification.

Hearing the matter on October 4, Justice K. Ravichandra Babu had asked all the sides to be present on October 9 and not to seek any adjournment.

MLAs have contended that the Speaker acted in a partisan manner by taking action against them. They said that they had gone to the Governor seeking a change of Chief Minister, and that does not construe as a defection. Further the rebel MLAs said they were not served disqualification orders.

Speaker Dhanapal has denied the allegations and stated that time was given to the MLAs several times to respond.

Hearing another petition, the Madras high court also directed the speaker to respond by 12 October to the opposition DMK's plea for action against 11 MLAs of the ruling party who had voted against chief minister during a trust vote on 18 February, when they were part of rebel camp led by O. Panneerselvam.
